Machynlleth and Gower Festivals 2016



This week's concerts are from festivals held in two of Britain's most beautiful areas, the Gower Peninsula and the picturesque mid-Wales market-town of Machynlleth. Highlights include music by Schumann: songs from mezzo-soprano Anna Anna Stéphany with pianist Sholto Kynoch, recorded at Machynlleth's Tabernacle, and Trio Isimsiz perform Schumann's restless last Piano Trio - written in 1851, just five years before his death - in the peaceful location of St. John's Gowerton. Presented by Christopher Cook. Schumann: Die Blume der Ergebung, Op 83 No 2; Du bist wie eine Blume, Op 25 No 24. Anna Stéphany (mezzo), Sholto Kynoch, (piano). Schumann: Piano Trio No 3 in G minor, Op 110. Trio Isimsiz: Erdem Misirlioglu (piano), Pablo Hernan Benedi (violin), Michael Petrov (cello).
